Kevin Durant becomes second-youngest to reach 20000 points

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant is widely considered to be the best scorer in the National Basketball Association as he can put up numbers in his sleep.

Kevin Durant's return to the lineup Wednesday night against the Clippers won't bring the same level of relief as expected 24 hours ago.

Only 44 players have reached 20,000 points in National Basketball Association history.

He also referred to the frequent kidnapping of journalists in Pakistan whenever they criticised the Pakistan's military. The Pakistani military has so far denied playing a role in any enforced disappearances, as has the civilian government.

Thompson was Golden State's only player this season to appear in all 41 games.

On Jan. 6, the guard had an even bigger game, notching 45 points on 11-of-21 shooting from the field while hitting 15 of his 16 attempts from the charity stripe in a 121-105 victory.

Durant could reach 20,000 for his career when he makes his return from a right calf strain against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday and is humbled by the opportunity to become the second-youngest player in National Basketball Association history to accomplish the feat behind LeBron James. The Warriors over the span went 9-2. He is averaging 25.9 points, 5.3 assists and 7.1 rebounds per contest in 33 games this season. He made more than 50 percent of his three-pointers and the team went 5-0. The Warriors also rank No. 1 in 3-point percentage as well as free-throw percentage.
